wedding & portrait photography

Would you believe me if I told you I am living my dream? A dream that consists of providing a photographic experience to couples and families that is both joyful, exciting, and effortless? It's true! If you were to ask my clients what their experience with me was like, they would smile proudly and confirm that I go above and beyond my job as a photographer (trust me, my bride, Maddy, told me this when I wrapped up her wedding day)!

I will be more than “just your photographer”, I will be your friend and someone you trust when you need help. I will make sure you look your absolute best for your photos by providing a detailed style guide AND I answer any and all questions you have. I will also gently guide you through fun and interactive poses and prompts that will help you relax and have fun

If you're looking for someone who will feel like a close friend AND who can truly capture your wedding or portraits while making your experience joyful and effortless, reach out to see if I'm available for your date!

the heart

When I was a little girl, my grandfather introduced me to art. He was a hobby painter himself and took no time to teach me what he knew. He taught me how to colour within the lines of my favourite colouring book and he taught me how to proportionally draw a face.

When I was 14, he passed away and I inherited his table-top easel. It’s no surprise that I pursued art in high school which is where I learned to use my first SLR camera and develop my first roll of film in photography class. This is where my love affair with capturing and freezing moments in time began. After attending college for something completely irrelevant and traveling the world did I realize my true calling. 

I’ve always been a sentimental person which is how I understand the value and importance of memories. After all, I plan to display my grandfather’s easel, including one of his paintings, proudly in my new home soon.

My hope for you is that you also display your cherished memories with pride.
